How to solve “This webpage has a redirect loop” error in Google Chrome

Today I faced a problem with Google Chrome (5.0.375.70). When I try to login Gmail, I got the error of This webpage has a redirect loop error instead of GMail Login or Inbox. It also suggested to clear the Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem.

So I thought of documenting this to help Computer noobs to get an idea of how to get it done. This is basically how to clear the cookies of a particular site.

Here is my error message screenshot.

How to clear the cookies to solve this issue. You can either clear all cookies in your browser or cookies for the web site which you face problem. Here I am clearing cookies for my web site www.google.com, to get my GMail working fine.

Step – 1: Go to Google Chrome Tool menu (Spanner icon in top right corner) -> Options -> Under the Hood -> Content Settings… -> Cookies -> Show cookies and other site data…

Step – 2: Now you should get a window listing all domains which have stored cookies in your browser. Enter your web site which reports error in Search text box; on the fly your web pages will be filtered. In my case it is google.com. Now select Remove All button; which should clear all cookies for these web pages. The below screenshot shows this.

Step – 3: Now again go to your web site which reported error, you should get it done this time :-)
